no, nooo,no! you've said too much already.Hoss, there was this issue in DPRK, Dear Leader, Kim Jung-II was getting his finger a lil too itchy.
I'd tell ya about it but ....
Thank you!That could be the prettiest jeep on this forum!! Great job, and I'm sure it was fun building it with your son!
I wish I knew as much as you do to do all the work myself!! Any good reference books you recommend?Thank you!
It was a fun build and has been an even better drive. The kid loves it.
I think his girlfriend didn't realize that other girls would like it too ! :laugh:
I had the Chilton's, the Rebuilders Guide, and the Haynes. After i was done. I kept the Haynes and sold the others.I wish I knew as much as you do to do all the work myself!! Any good reference books you recommend?
Is there any reason that you went with Herculiner over U-Pol Raptor?
Thanks Jeff, I'll poke in every once in a while.Great to see that your back!
Elliott, glad you like, that's why the pics are here.hey fatman, I've been looking through your "projects" the last few days at work. First of all I'd like to say wow. your detailed pictures have been a wonderful thing to many of us here. One question I've had, and yes I've search is "where is your "project frame"? I've searched around and haven't found much.....
Hey CBThat said, any issues since day 1 that you care to share? Since I got my silver one on the road the HEI distributor needed to be replaced... also I had an issue with the brake booster... you can't expect to build something and have everything work great right out the door... always little tweaks here and there.
Not sure about a "professional" opinion, but I'll give ya what I can.Hey fatman thanks for the info. I'll go ahead with a few questions even though i have somewhat short of a few thousand. I read you have the 4.5 inch rubicon express lift. What do you think of it so far? Did you have to worry about driveline angle? or even longer driveshafts? this is the lift i'm looking at getting and wanted a "professional" opinion.
anything else would be great
Glad to see your back Too!I imagine he's referring to a Tie Rod Flip.
Thanks USMC !you made the comment " add a brace, HD box bracket, and doing a TRF. " I assume you mean a powersteering brace, and what on earth is a TRF? I couldn't find in your thread if you did a body lift or not... also, did you go through all the bushings?
